  1. This car and mine were the first two delivered to the dealer from the factory and I am sure yours was the first registered for the the road. Hi Paul, yes Silverstone, mine is as the launch car dark grey. registered Oct/Nov 2017. I have a photo somewhere of the two of them on the lorry, but can't find it at the mo.

  3. Nice, your getting there! Bit faster than I am with mine, seats went in nicely, just made a frame, boy what a difference! Andy
  4. Hi Trevor, how's the little one coming on? Andy
  5. If you are doing the main light units, scotch off the cover , and give it two coats of clear! Keeps it all looking dandy.
  6. Hi there, Sorry but just been reading this! And this is my opinion ! not meaning to rude, nor flippant in any way shape or form! Honestly. But Sorry but you don't seem to sure of anything to do with the task of changing your pads, Now your car would of cost more than 50K The brakes are the only things that stop you hitting something else! Labour time to fit new would be somewhere between .75 to 1 hour book time just get them done. then you are 100 % sure. Sorry if that seems a bit blunt, but as an MOT tester I have seen the results of someone having a go! Andy
  7. Hi there, I used these for my box!! largest bill for the whole build, and my largest woe! Took 6 months to get back, and what I got back was not my casings! First problem was, drive shaft seals leaked, and with 100 miles we found, that they didnt locktight the bolt that holds the pivet for the clutch fork! , done complete cltuch, flywheel, and hydraulics, approx 2 k to repair!! Would I go back? NO! Andy

    MOT Query

    We are approx. an hour away from you in Milton Keynes. Andy
  10. Option 3, well thats the way I would go Best of both worlds.
  11. Hi all, if I could just add my 2p worth, I've been lucky enough to run both at the same time, and while the Exige just has loads of raw power, and is an amazing track tool, it does have its down sides, only in as much as the running costs, they love a nice drink! 3 fills on a good long track, they eat tyres, and brakes! on the other side , the Elise, just as good! but a little slower on the strights and because of the weight, does not use the consumables as fast, nor the fuel. The only thing they lack is the noise, but that means you can get on any track in the uk.
  12. Hi Steve, That it was!, and what a car! only passed it on, to take a 430
  13. Hi there, Please take heed, of what is being said, these chaps are only trying to help, or you could loose 10k on the first turn of the key!! Trust me what Mike does not know about these motors is not worth thinking about. Mike helped me out 2 years ago, and when I had finished building mine, I then put it in the back of the van and drove it to Leicester, so a factory chap could check my timing, as I didn't what hours and hours of work and shed loads of cash going pop!! All the best Andy

    Dump valve

    Hi there, Could anybody point me in the direction of the dump valve, Please, as mine sound like a boy racer car! There is a air leak when boosting, that does not show on a static smoke test? Thanks Andy
  15. Makes it stand out more, nice, would like to see a pic of the rear end!
  16. Hi all, Had mine done, after complete restoration, with nexis Armour guard, via Matt at Silverstone. Complete front end, and bottom of doors and sills
  17. Thank you, I will know by the weekend, again thanks just for looking! Andy
  18. Thanks for all the help, no stock anywhere, but think we can sort it.
  19. Hi all, I am looking for a clutch Master cylinder, or if any body else knows what else would fit the car. or even where I could get the old unit rebuilt Trouble started after the people in wales built the box, and didn't lock tight the bolt that holds the pivot for the clutch fork! so far, flywheel, clutch, new slave and now a master not bad for less than 100 miles, and two and half years work. If anybody could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. Thanks for reading . Andy
  20. The original release from Lotus, was 6 for the uk , Fact 12k deposit at time of order Fact No colour change except for the outside of the car Fact So if you had spent 120k on something that was going 1 of 6 in the uk wouldn't you be pissed? As now you can have any colour, inside or out, calipers of what ever colour, and 4 times the amount of cars!
  21. If success is built on deception, is it really success? Or did JMG just take the initial 6 buyers as mugs?
  22. Gt 430 up for grabs at
  23. How about getting rid of the lying, penny pinching bloke that sits on top of the tree in the UK. Each year you get more taken from the car, cargo nets, engine covers, speakers to name a few, and the price goes up. Another 10 BHP? " that will be 30K please
